Last night I attended my first meeting of the Alumnae Book Club put on by my high school! Of course I was anxious to see what it would be like, what the other women would be like but I was going with my best friend Kaylie (whom I have known since 7th grade)!
We met at a local Starbucks and walked in to find that we were the youngest members by at least 40 years! We even met someone who had gone to school and graduated with Kaylie's Grandmother in 1947!! Once the ladies had calmed down, introductions were made and we began to talk about the June book selection - A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger.
The conversation flowed easily and before I knew it we were off the topic of the book and onto other things! I felt so included and connected with this group of women even though many of them were grandmothers and had lived in a whole different generation than Kaylie and I.
When we did actual talk about the book, it was interesting to hear the others perceptive because they had all lived through the events of the Boston Strangler, while Kaylie and I hadn't even been born yet! I did enjoy reading this book, although I thought that Junger's style of writing was a bit choppy.
Next months book is Flushed by W. Hodding Carter and it is about the evolution of the toilet and plumbing! I will definitely being going back - it was so much fun!
